Achilles Gold, Nickel and PGE Project

The Achilles project in the Northeastern Goldfields.

The Achilles Project in the Northeastern Goldfields region of Western Australia, is located 200km north of Laverton and approximately 190km east of Wiluna, comprising of two granted Exploration Licences covering an area of 7,400 ha.

Achilles Geology

The Achilles Project is geologically located within the Gerry Well greenstone belt along with the adjacent to the south Collurabbie project which hosts a series of Ni-Cu-PGE prospects, including the Olympia prospect. 

To the south of the Gerry Well greenstone belt is in the Duketon greenstone belt which hosts the Moolart Well gold mine, approximately 90 km to the south of the Achillies project.

The prospective Archean geology found within the project area are exposed at surface in the southern part of the Project area but become progressively buried by the onlapping Paleoproterozoic sediments of the Earaheedy Basin to the north.

Achilles Exploration Program

A recent review by Tambourah Metals identified potential for similar komatiite-associated Ni-Cu-PGE and gold mineralisation styles encountered in the adjoining Collurabbie project area to the south.

Initial reconnaissance investigations and sampling of the geological, geochemical and geophysical anomalies throughout the Project area will assist in determining targets to drill test. 

By engaging an exploration geochemistry consultant to review and interpret all geochemical data collected to date and integration with the geochemistry, geophysics and surface geological interpretation to refine targets for a drill program following heritage surveys
